RBPF officers say good riddance to Rolle
Many officers are counting down the days until Police Commissioner Paul Rolle retires on July 5.
Rolle, who had a lackluster tenure as commissioner, was not well-liked due to his rude and petty ways.
The Free National Movement (FNM) government appointed Rolle as commissioner after putting four senior officers on leave and then reassigning them to other government ministries.
Clayton Fernander and Leamond Deleveaux, the incoming commissioner and deputy commissioner respectively, were among the experienced officers that the FNM put out to pasture.
Due to Rolle’s unpopularity, few have made donations towards his retirement gift.
The Force had suggested that constables and corporals give $30, sergeants and inspectors give $50, and senior ranking officers donate $100.
But many officers have said that Rolle will be giving them a gift when he demits office.
